Full description
Enjoy a scenic Sri Lankan tour starting on two wheels as you hop on a bike to visit the seaside town of Galle. You’ll start on the main road but you’ll begin to notice that life slows down as you get closer to town. Ride past picturesque rice fields until you come to your first stop where you’ll see locals heading towards the temple.

Along the way you’ll see locals busy with their daily activities and, if there’s time, you can stop to talk to them to learn more about their culture and daily routines. Galle is famous for its beautiful beaches, but lesser known is Koggala Lagoon that lends even more beauty to this already scenic area. As you ride by the water, keep a look out for the abundant birdlife as well as the small islands that dot the lagoon. If you’re hungry, your guide can stop for some snacks to refuel before trading bikes for tuk-tuks.

Ride in a tuk-tuk past beautiful beaches along the coast to your end point of the tour. Along the way, you’ll pass the free-trade zone and a few markets where you’ll hear the hustling of vendors trying to get their sales done for the day.  

Your Galle tour comes to an end when you reach Hotel Sanmira. At this point, you’re free to head back to your hotel or take the same tuk-tuk (at your own cost) somewhere else. If you need some sightseeing inspiration, ask your guide or hotel staff who will be happy to give you some suggestions.
